3 Data We Collect and Receive
3.1 Client Data
Clients and Authorized Users routinely submit Client Data to Yespper when using the Services. Client Data is governed by the Client Agreement. Client Data may include Account Information, Hosted Data, Sync Data, or any Client Data otherwise defined in the Client Agreement. If you have any questions about your Personal Data with respect to Client Data, please contact the Client whose Workspace you use.
- Account Information.
To create or update an Authorized User account for the Services, you or your Client (e.g. your employer) provide us with data about you and your employment, such as:
- your name
- date of birth
- job title
- work email address
- office location
- office phone number
- your company department or organization
- your manager’s name
- unique identifier
- employment dates
- profile picture
- user name
- any other applicable Personal Data that may identify you individually
- Hosted Data.
When a Client uses, or Authorized User interacts with, the Services, we may collect, process, and store any data that is created, posted, uploaded, stored, displayed, transmitted, or submitted on or through the Services (collectively, “Hosted Data“), as a function of rendering the Services. Hosted Data may contain Personal Data to the extent a Client or Authorized User discloses Personal Data on or through the Services. Yespper is a passive recipient and takes no active part in collecting or storing Hosted Data. Except to the extent necessary to render the Services or related support for the Services, Yespper does not purposefully access any Hosted Data. For example, if you submit a review of another Authorized User, the Services passively processes and stores such performance review for the purpose of rendering the Services, and we will only access such information to the extent necessary to provide the Services and related support for the Services.
- Sync Data.
Yespper makes tools available to integrate data from Third Party Services used by Client into the Services (“Sync Data“). For example, Client may integrate its Workspace with Client’s human capital management platform. When the Services are integrated with a Third Party Service for Sync Data, we will receive all data selected by the Client to sync with the Services. Sync Data is imported into the Services as either Account Information, Hosted Data, or such other Client Data.
3.2 Other Information
Yespper may collect Other Information from Clients and Authorized Users related to their usage of the Services and interactions with Yespper. Other Information may include Metadata, Log Data, Technical Data, Cookie Data, Third Party Services, and Additional Information Provided to Yespper.

When an Authorized User interacts with the Services, metadata is generated that provides additional context about the Services and the way Authorized Users use the Services (“Metadata“). Yespper collects aggregated Metadata of the Services, so that the resulting data and statistics are not personally identifiable to any individual Authorized User.

Yespper does not collect Personal Data with any Technical Data or relate any Technical Data to any individual Authorized User.

Clients may choose to permit or restrict integrations with Third Party Services for their Workspace. Once enabled, the enabled Third Party Services may share certain data with Yespper to effectuate the integration. You should check the privacy settings and notices of these Third Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to Yespper. When the Services are integrated with Third Party Services to enhance the Services (e.g., Slack, Jira, Gmail, etc.), we may receive data regarding your credentials for and use of the applicable Third Party Services, such as your user name, your unique identifier, and your information transmitted from or made available with permissions by such Third Party Services (e.g., account profile, gender, age range, language, geographic region, etc.). When the Services are integrated with Third Party Services for the login and authentication process (e.g., Google Sign-In, OneLogin, ADFS, and many other SAML 2.0 compatible services) and an Authorized User logs in to the Services using a Third Party Services authenticator, we may receive data regarding your credentials for the applicable Third Party Services, such as your log-in, your user name, your email, your unique identifier, profile picture, and your information transmitted from or made available with permissions by such Third Party Services (e.g. account profile, gender, age range, language, geographic region, etc.).
